As the Erie School District prepares to protest it's budget woes in Harrisburg, the Union City School District is facing a crisis as well.

On Monday, the Union City School Board announced plans to possibly cut all sport programs.

A move, that is not sitting well with youth football coach Michael Bacon.

"For me, that would be kind of devastating," said Bacon.  "I have nine kids of my own...and being a coach of sports myself, I see a lot of kids that don't even have a lot of parent support."

Under the resolution, sport programs would be cut if the state does not pass a budget before next school year.  According to Union City School District Superintendent Dr. Sandra Myers, the cuts would save the district $400,000.

But many coaches, parents, and students say it's not worth it.

"If kids didn't have something to strive for, something to keep them on the right path, they are more likely to take the  wrong route." said Union City High School wrestling coach Jeff Hiner.

Former wrestling coach Steve Jones agrees.

"I think it's going to be a hard pill to swallow for a lot of people if that would go through,"  said Jones.  "I'm not sure if we would have the same community in the end if they would try to remove sports from the school."

The school board is scheduled to meet again on Thursday at 6:00 p.m.
